Oiseau Rock is a red ochre pictograph site rising majestically 150 metres above the Ottawa River near Sheenboro. It has been a witness to many river crossings as well as rituals and sacred tobacco offerings.

Of the five known rock art sites in the province, it is considered one of the largest of its kind in Quebec, but it has also recently been deemed one the worst graffiti-laden sites in Canada, according to recent studies conducted by the Ministry of Culture and Communications.
